The Busy Girl's Guide to Cake Decorating - Ruth Clemens

  • many Cake Stuff customers are true sugarcraft enthusiasts but we realise that there are also many people who'd love to make their own cakes but whose lives are simply too busy to be able to spend hours in the kitchen on a new hobby.  Find out how even the busiest of busy girls can whip up impressive homemade treats in next to no time
  • Ruth Clemens, finalist on the original series of The Great British Bake Off, shares her secrets in creating quick but gorgeous cakes, bakes and biscuits
  • choose from 25 beautiful projects to make in under an hour, in an afternoon, or over a weekend and be amazed at what you can achieve
  • this gorgeously designed paperback is all about cake decorating without the fuss, with projects split into three sections:  Evening Whip-Ups (one-hour projects) are perfect when you have very little time, and are easy to throw together one evening after work, Half-Day Delights (two-hour projects) are for when you have an afternoon to spare, Weekend Wonders (three- to four-hour projects) are for when you've got a bit more time available in your schedule
  • in cake-decorating terms, all of the above are tiny amounts of time - large, intricate projects take professional cake decorator's days, if not weeks, of work.  We busy girls often don't have the time to create those kinds of works of art but this book contains stunning projects that can be achieved in next to no time
  • Ruth also talks you through all the equipment and ingredients you'll need, shows you how to line a cake tin, gives her tried-and-tested recipes for fruit cake, sponge cake and chocolate cake, as well as cupcake recipes, cookie recipes and frosting recipes. She shows you how to pipe with royal icing and buttercream piping techniques, and how to cover a cake with marzipan, how to cover cakes and boards with sugarpaste, how to trim a cake board with ribbon, how to colour fondant to your desired shade, how to stack cakes using dowels, and some wonderful creative embellishment techniques
  • The Busy Girl's Guide to Cake Decorating - the perfect place to start your foray into the world of cakes
  • paperback  128 pages full colour
  • approx 22cm x 21.5cm
